|| We ask for peace, urgently, in Ukraine. The pre-war tension there has made us very worried for Sonya and her family. Sonya spent many years of her childhood here with us in Barcelona (we see her here in a photo taken in June 2012, shortly before she went back to her country). They now live in Odessa, a city on the Black Sea coast, in the southwest of that country. There the escalating violence between pro-Russian and pro-European groups is causing dozens of deaths. Our hearts ache when we hear the news. That’s where Sonya, her parents and her grandparents are. They live right there.
